So Cyber Six was from me. I know I took more pictures of her hair and closeup of her face, but damn it I can find them. She's got the weird tuft of hair on the back of her head (like many anime characters have) and hair over her 1 eye at certain angles.

Since I don't do Manga, I literally only knew 1 character from my recipients list. Not a complaint, just didn't know them. I was piecing out Stain from My Hero Academia but then a couple weeks after this started, McFarlane put one out.

And this just came in!

I'm totally in love with this Kaitlyn Fairchild! i think I spotted her in the previews and hoped it was for me!

The painting is so awesome, so smooth, the face is pretty cool, I think it may be sculpted from scratch?

I even made an unboxing video that I'll be uploading as soon as I know who's the maker!

Please elf, show yourself so I can thank you!

Fairchild was mine! So glad she got there safely and that you like her! I was gonna get some more pics, but yours are so much better than mine that I probably won't bother... It's a pretty simple recipe - Scream torso & arms, Thundra legs (to get the exaggerated J. Scott Campbell look) with a cast of a McFarlane Danger Girl head. I converted the hips to true balljoints 'cause Thundra's hips are shite and added a double barbell joint for the neck.

I'm not gonna lie, I had a really tough time making this figure - in fact, I chose what I thought would be the easiest figure to make. I've been dealing with a prolapsed disc in my back for the last year which has been causing nerve damage down my arms, and combined with my exisiting disability meant that I was having to work one-handed for much of this - although I still think she turned out ok!

I think you totally nailed it, and now that I know the health trouble you are having, I appreciate the present even more.

Would love to see some WIP pics if you have them and I'm sending you a PM regarding your social media links so I can give you credit!

Again, thanx so much, I envy no one!

Marrow was mine! I was really happy with how she turned out and super glad to find her on my list! Definitely the kind of weird mutant lady that I love to make!

Wow I’ve missed a lot.
Some really great reveals. That he man is pretty dope looking. Some nice sculpt in that armor.

Karai I’m not familiar with but looks pretty dope.

Diggin on that toad as well. Nicely executed.

That marrow is just perfect. No surprise it came from pymparticles.

And fairchild turned out wonderfully. Great head choice!

Can’t wait for more and mine whenever it arrives. Stay safe everyone

Good video! No worries, your English isn't that bad. Awesome Fairchild, you were lucky to receive her, she's in my top 3 favs for this year!

Great reveals ;) . That Marrow is close to perfection, and that Fairchild is very professionally looking, you did another great job, discogod, and more considering the difficulties you had to endure.

Here hoping mine will arrive by christmas!!

I got my Secret Santa in!!!
Special shout out to my Santa, he freaking killed this Ben 10 custom of his alien Eye Guy!
My Santa full on sculpted everything and gave Eye Guy a magnetic chest eye which can be replaces with a tendril eye.
In the last pic, I have included my new custom with the other aliens (and Ben) that I have made so far.
Thank you again to my Santa! This figure really reignited my customizing flame and I hope create more figures myself.
Also if you're interested in seeing more pics of my other aliens, my customs IG is: Gonard_custom

That is indeed a very unique custom :) . Love to see appreciation for Ben 10! one of the best customs I've seen so far, considering the difficulty and how well it has been pulled off.
